    I am running for Mayor of Freeport. My only agenda is jobs for our citizens. We must make it our priority. Jobs increase growth ,motivation, positive environment and an overall increase in revenues, both for the citizens and our city. We will have a city manager soon he can be responsible for day to day operations. I want to promote and market Freeport to all those companies that are growing or are looking for great a place for workers that are ready to join in on there growth. like us on Facebook or our website link. Joe Cardoso or joe cardoso for mayor. Thank you
